Takitimu is one of the great tribal histories in the New Zealand literary canon. It tells of the Ngati Kahungunu people - tangata whenua of Hawke's Bay and parts of East Coast and Wairarapa - from their origins in the Pacific Islands to their lineage in Aotearoa up to the twentieth century.It is divided into four main sections: the history up to the departure of Takitimu and other canoes of migration; the history of Ngati Kahungunu; short biographies of Sir James Carroll, Sir Maui Pomare and the Rev. Tamihana Huata; and appendices describing charms, proverbs, the interpretation of dreams and signs, and the Maori almanac.Complete with genealogical tables, this is a book of great value for history enthusiasts and especially the people of Ngati Kahungunu - the third largest Maori tribe, with descendants throughout New Zealand and Australia.
